Story: ‘La Turbina Francis i els Farinons’

Fruit of the celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of the Francis turbine at the Ecomuseu-Farinera in 2005, we thought it was a great time to dedicate a story to its commemoration. You don’t turn one hundred every day! And the turbine isn’t just any machine, since it is responsible for making the entire Farinera operate.
